Administration Server Role

This page describes the Administration Server Role SQL FineBuild deployment file.

The assumptions relating to this role are:
  • Multiple DBAs will share this server via Terminal Services
  • Only client tools should be installed
  • All software should be installed on the E: drive wherever possible
1) Create a role file in the Site SQL Files Folder similar to the example below. Call the file SQLAdmin.bat.

CALL "SQLProd.bat" %*     /Type:Client                  ^
 /IAcceptLicenseTerms     /Edition:Standard             ^
 /DrvProg:E

The role file contains all the parameters that define the role. The /Edition: value is not important for a Client build, but should be stated in order to find the SQL install media.

2) In this example, it is not necessary to create an install file for each server, as there are no server-specific items.

3) When the SQLAdmin file is run, it runs the environment default values file which in turn invokes FineBuild with the combined set of parameters.
